Sep 1 – Mile High Kite Festival
Ever wondered how much string it takes to fly a kite a mile high? Only a couple hundred feet if you attend the Mile High Kite Festival on Beech Mountain. This is a wonderful tradition on Beech Mountain, as the community welcomes back the Richmond Air Force and Wings Across Carlina Kiting and Okra Society Kiting Clubs. The first 300 kids will get a free kite for the competition, or they can be purchased. Kite clubs will demonstrate flying techniques, and also display their kites.
